The book starts with the line, "You aren't going to like me very much," and it's true. From the onset, I had major Gone Girl vibes (Gillian Flynn), which was my favourite book in 2012. A husband and wife, both writers, keeping secrets, and a marriage based on lies. Hard to not compare, until you hit the halfway point. Lately I've been reading many domestic thrillers, and I'm starting to love this genre. It keeps me on my toes. This book is binge-worthy, full of suspense, accompanied with muti-layered characters. The only thing I found distracting in this novel, is the way the author titles each chapter... Red herrings? Foreshadowing? I hated it. I've read one other book by J.T. Ellison this past summer, called No One Knows, and I really enjoyed it, however this one trumps it. I was completely absorbed in this twisty, unputdownable story.
